WELCOME TO PODERE LA COSTA

Podere La Costa estate can be found in Tuscany, in Gallicano (Lucca), at the beginning of the splendid Garfagnana area. It's situated on the hillside, in a calm and sunny place, surrounded by chest nut and acacia woods. From the estate, (which is very close to the centre of Gallicano) you can enjoy incredible views of the Serchio Valley, the peaks of the Tuscan Apennines, the splendid citadel of Barga, the villages Verni and Trassillico, the Apuans and Mount Pania. The estate features some beautiful terraces where our vineyard, fruit trees and vegetable gardens can be found. Our Olive groves are higher up, on the edge of the woods. Here, everything is made by giving the utmost respect to nature and to the environment that surrounds us and our products are grown using solely natural methods. We make wine and produce vegetables, fruit, honey and firewood.

ABOUT US

When we saw this age old estate for the first time, we were fascinated and we knew it was where we wanted to live, in the midst of greenery and clean air. Now we love to share our natural products and our environment with whoever wants to appreciate and respect it.

ACTIVITIES

Some of our activities, carried out as in the old days.

MUSHROOM COLLECTING

In season, our forests give us wonderful specimens of all different kinds of mushrooms, including the very tasty Garfagnana Porcini mushroom. We dry some of them so we can enrich our dishes all year round.

HARVESTING POTATOES

Our potatoes are grown using natural methods and collected by hand. They are then stored in a fresh and dry warehouse, just like they once did in the past.

PRUNING VINES

Everything we do in our vineyard and to our vines is done naturally. This allows us to optimize development, ensuring the quality of the grapes that we produce and, during harvest, carefully select only the best grapes.

THE VEGETABLE GARDEN

All the work done in our vegetable gardens is done by hand, taking extreme care during the entire life cycle of our products. We don't use pesticides and we only use natural fertilizers. This means we only produce good and genuine products.
